PORT ST. LUCIE — A 25-year-old man accused of bringing a paintball gun that looked like a real weapon into a fast-food eatery Friday afternoon faces a misdemeanor charge, according to a police report released Monday and a spokesman.
An employee at Wendy’s in the 200 block of Southwest Port St. Lucie Boulevard saw a man identified as Xavier Davis walk in about 1:15 p.m. with “a firearm on his side,” according to the police report.
When police arrived, they found Davis sitting at a table with what appeared to be a semi-automatic weapon in the seat in front of him.
Davis said he was going “paint balling” and was riding a scooter and didn’t want to leave it outside.
Davis, of the 1200 block of North 24th Street, faces a misdemeanor open carrying of weapons charge.
